Featuring nearly 40 of the greatest songs ever recorded, Smokey Joe’s Cafe isn’t just great pop music – it’s compelling musical theatre!

Beethoven: The Heroic - Pacific Chamber Orchestra


At the Bankhead Theater

May 19
Sun

 

 

 

Beethoven: The Heroic - Pacific Chamber Orchestra
In Eroica, Beethoven both upset and energized the musical world by the range of emotion this symphony expresses. His special genius unites a wide range of emotions with perfectly constructed music. Inspired by the Roman General Coriolanus, Beethoven created a musical canvas baring the emotions of the Hero’s Journey in his Coriolan Overture. The pathways Beethoven creates in both pieces allow us to re-experience our own Hero’s journey. As a humanist, he believed the Hero redeems humanity through the arts, including music. Although deaf by 1820, he still composed many works, including his towering Ninth Symphony, surely a Hero’s journey.
